Struggling to get the kids to eat their fruit and veg? You aren't alone!
Carving food into something more appealing really helps to encourage them to tuck in though and that's exactly what we have been doing this week with the Thomas Kitchen knives from Tesco!
The 5 knife set, worth over £100 and complete with block, is really useful for dicing and chopping but with seriously sharp blades they make transforming ordinary food into something a little more exciting easy too...
- Slice your apple in half straight through the core.
- Using the utility knife carve out three hexagons along the centre of the apple (peel side)
- Carve out more around each side of the apple
- Add extra detailing if you wish; We cut out a line along the edge of the apple
- Add satsuma segments to represent the head, arms and legs
NB if you are preparing this in advance for a party or lunch box, use lemon juice to keep the apple fresh and to prevent it changing colour.
This was very simple to do so ideal for a novice or someone worried about handling knifes in particular. The Mini Mes were even more keen to eat their fruit than usual when presented as a cute animal so it's certainly worth a go.
If you fancy recreating this idea or making something even more intricate then get you can pick up your own knives from Tesco today!
